Chief Rabbi helps mark JBD’s expansion

JEWISH Blind & Disabled (JBD) held an event to mark the inaugural concrete at the latest in their expanding number of developments, which includes three existing buildings across Essex.

A pour ceremony at their eighth development, Ephraim Court in Mill Hill East, was attended by a number of special guests including Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, and Dr Mathew Offord MP.

The building is named Ephraim Court in memory of brothers Menashi (Morris) and Heskel (Harry) Ephraim, after the charity secured a lead gift for the new development from the Ephraim 1998 Charitable Trust.

It will provide 23 one-bedroom mobility apartments and seven two-bedroom mobility apartments as well as an overnight studio apartment for the on-site house manager and a range of communal facilities.

The Chief Rabbi said: “I have witnessed the impressive work and activities of Jewish Blind & Disabled for many years and I am exceptionally proud of their amazing achievements.”
